Location: Elbert, Colorado

I've been woodworking since Junior High School. I even flunked out of wood shop in the 10th grade. The teacher knew my Dad (Also a woodworker). Kept telling on me. So for the whole year I only made 1 shadowbox.

Took a break from wood working to go into the Air Force. After 4 years went to college to get a degree in Computer science. 4 years later got a job working as a Computer Software Engineer. Been doing this for 34 years.

Do wood working to relieve stress. Not great at any one thing. Jump from the lathe to the scroll saw to finish work in the house.

Love to try Intarsia some time. God knows i have boxes and boxes of scraps lying around. Want to make some wooden gear clocks. Got 5 plans for them. never started. Love working on the Lathe. Never know what the wood is going to look like.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Chris, welcome aboard Lumberjocks. Your basement shop looks like a dream shop to me… lots of cabinet space, every machine set up with its own workstation and light, power and dust collection everywhere. Sandor Nagyszylanski should have visited you for his ‘Setting Up Shop’ book!
I saw your acrylic bottle stoppers, too, and see what you mean about the bulbous shape. Very nice. And you’ve gone beyond ‘bottle stopper’ into an art form with them. Keep posting. I love seeing things I can learn so much from.
Glad you’re here.

Thanks Barbs. This is my 4th workshop. Started out with it being in 1/4 of basement in New Hampshire. Then Moved to Ohio and it grew to a little over 1/4. Moved again to Texas and it grew to 1/2 of basement. Now got to take over 3/4 in Colorado. Of course the more room you get the more toys you have to buy.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…
